Jacksonville Workshops and Gala Milonga with Glen Royce

May 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 11:59 pm UTC-4

2 – 3:20 pm Workshop 1: Spiral Education; Focusing and Revisiting the Fundamentals

In education, concepts are introduced and revisited time and time again until mastery is reached; the same is true in tango. Basic concepts (and games!) will be introduced to newcomers and more advanced concepts will be introduced to ‘veteran dancers’. We’ll also look at how one (no matter which role) can help a less-experienced ‘tanguero’ dance better.

3:20 – 4:50 pm Workshop 2: The Tango Spiral; Pivots and Turns for Both Roles

Pivoting and turns are basic concepts in tango; doing/leading both in a true closed embrace and without pulling/pushing your partner out of axis is what makes tango, well, tango(!). We’ll look at both basic technique and more advanced concepts which will help us dance/lead more elegantly and smoothly.

7 – 8 pm Pre Milonga Class: Painting the Dance Floor

Tango, with over a hundred years of history, has many different musical and dance styles. The fine arts have many different schools of thought; tango music does, as well. We’ll look at how to break down the musical elements in tango and turn our feet into musical paint brushes, and the dance floor into our multi-colored canvas.

8pm to 12:30 am: Milonga; 8 – 11 traditional Milonga; 11 – 12:30 modern orchestras, nuevo and alternative.
